The Cat in the Hat (2003)
The Fish: Stop this right now!
Conrad: Who said that?
The Fish: Me! Remember, the fish? Came home in a baggy, loved me for two weeks, and then *nothing*!
Sally: The fish is talking.
The Cat: Well, sure, he can talk. But is he saying anything? No, not really.

The Fish: This cat should not be here, he should not be about! He should not be here when your mother is out!

The Fish: Children, this cat is currently in violation of... seventeen of your mother's rules!
[the phone rings, and The Cat answers it]
The Cat: City Morgue!
The Fish: [losing it] Eighteen!

The Fish: [on the toilet] This is where they buried my brother!

The Fish: Someone else should drive!
The Cat: Alright, you win. Concrete, you drive.
[gives Conrad the wheel]
Conrad: Are you serious?
The Cat: I don't know. A little voice inside of me is saying, "This is a bad idea." But I can barely hear that little voice, because an even louder little voice is screaming, "Let the twelve-year-old drive!" Now punch it.
Conrad: This is awesome!
Sally: I want to drive.
The Cat: I think that's a great idea.
[gives Sally another wheel]
Conrad: Wait, two people can't drive at the same time.
The Cat: You're right. We should all drive.
[gets his own wheel]

The Fish: A dog goes, "Woof woof," and everybody knows that little Timmy's trapped under a log. But a fish speaks in plain English...


The Cat in the Hat (1971) (TV)
Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: Out! Out! Out of this house!
Cat in the Hat: OUT? OUT? Why every house should have a cat in it... curled up by the fireplace little warm...
Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: Out! And take those things with you! Out!
Cat in the Hat: Take the things? But who ever heard of a house without things in it?
Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: They're not things, they're, they're... and you're not a cat! Whoever heard of a six-foot cat?

Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: Now, to be certain that I have this straight... I'll re-REcapitulate.

Cat in the Hat: Who's that? I believe we haven't yet met.
Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: The name is Krinklebein. Carlos K. Krinklebein. Now please go away. Tell that top-headed cat he should not be about. He should not be here when your mother is out!

Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: By the way, Cat, just what is a family gredunza?
Cat in the Hat: Oh, they come in all styles from triple-G to minus-aught.
Boy: Is it bigger than a...?
Cat in the Hat: Occasionally, but on most occasions, not.
Sally: Is it smaller than a...?
Cat in the Hat: They no longer make that kind, but one family gredunza is always smaller than another.

Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: [about the Cat In the Hat] Now, let me repeat, and I don't like to shout, but he should not be here when your mother is out!

Cat in the Hat: Now, if I were a fish, where would I hide a moss-covered, three-handled family gredunza?
Boy: Whatever it is, it isn't here.
Sally: And whatever it is, it isn't here.
Cat in the Hat: Wherever it is, it is left in some lurch. Wherever it is, we must speed up the search.
Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: I'll tell you this: it's not in the unabridged dictionary.

Boy: Aw, give it back to him, Mr. Krinklebein.
Sally: Come on, now, don't be mean.
Mr. Krinklebein the Fish: But I didn't steal his whatzis! I'm guiltless! I'm clean!
